Mavis Staples: “If All I Was Was Black”

Describe it 1 sentence: Strong and hopeful R&B + Gospel.

Favorite tracks: This entire album is great but I love the title track and “Build a Bridge”

How I heard about it: Spotify Discover Weekly recommended Staples’ cover of “Slippery People” and I sought out some of her other work.

Best line from artist’s Wikipedia: “In the 2015 documentary Mavis! she reveals that Bob Dylan once proposed to her, and she turned him down.”
